Beaches near the Blue Cave
There are three beaches on the island of Bisevo, though you can anchor the boat almost anywhere on the coast and swim there. However, those places will most likely be rocky, making it hard for some people to climb out if they decide to.
The Bostra beach is a beautiful beach hidden on the west side of the island. Not many people know about this beach, and for good reason. The easiest way to reach this beach is by boat. However, it is worth it because this might be the prettiest beach on the list, yet it is the hardest one to reach.
Porat Beach is a beautiful sand beach that is easy to get to. It is on the coast of the town of Porat and is easily reachable by or crossing the island. It is located a bit more north then Boštra beach on the west side of the island.
Also on the west side, but even more north is the Salbunara beach. This is another easy reachable beach that is worth a visit, especially considering the village of Salbunara is an attraction it self.
Hrid is a big rock formation on the coast of Bisevo island. You will pass it on your way to the Blue Cave once you buy a ticket. You might want to take some pictures at the Hrid because it is really interesting for a rock.
The attraction closest to the Blue Cave is no other than the Military Tunnels (Vojni Tuneli). This historical landmark is a newly renovated series of army tunnels that leads to an amazing observation deck called Terasa-vidikovac.
The Blue Cave isn’t the only cave on the island. On the south side, there is another cave called Medvidina špilja. Unlike the Blue Cave, this one is free. Though it does lack the blue glow, it is amazing because you can and will have to swim true the second part of it (bring a waterproof light).
Gatula is another historical remnant of the Yugoslavian army. These well-kept military buildings are cleaned, lit, and safe. Perfect trip for a history buff. The views here are also amazing.
Biševo Salbunara is a small village with an amazing beach. Take a walk and a dip on a relaxing beach. Definitively less popular then the other spots on the island, but just as worth it for a relaxing few hours in the sun.
